Here’s a great article I just found that has a list of helpful resources for those working though Code Year. It’s worth a read even if you’re not using CodeAcademy.

You also might like the new NYPL’s Stereogranimator website. Where you can create animated images of their historic collection of sterographs.
Also it looks like SNAP the Students and New Archivist Professional Round Table has been approved. This is great news. Can’t wait to see what comes next.
Codecademy is an excellent resource. It’s a brilliant method for teaching people how to code. This is a program that was sorely needed. I look forward to learning more and continuing to learn code this year. I’ve been telling everyone I can about this website. There was just a Digital archivist position posted from the Rockefeller archives looking for archivists with these skills. Honestly, learning code isn’t going to get you that job all by itself, but it might help you gain the skills that might help you gain experience so you can apply for such a position in the future.
I came across this post a few days ago, it has an excellent list of areas you can go into with a Library Science degree. Most of the jobs listed require extra training in addition to the degree. However if you’re a student or want to expand your knowledge base, this is a great place to start learning what else to learn and where else you can go to learn more.
